First Lady Melania Trump has been exceptionally busy during her first Christmas season in the White House. Despite all the festivities and responsibilities she has in her new role, she kept herself even busier with spreading compassion to the hundreds of victims of this year’s natural disasters. Now that she’s back in Washington, D.C., she’s settling back into her festive routine for the rest of December when a photo was snapped of her and President Trump. While the shot looks stunning as ever, there’s something unexpected that the camera caught. Now the secret is out and the first lady is bracing herself for the inevitable attacks.There is absolutely nothing this incredible presidential pair can do without coming under an onslaught of scrutiny from their detractors. The couple’s first White House Christmas picture was no exception. Everyone immediately noticed something “wrong” with it as soon as the official portrait was revealed. Now there’s no more hiding it and there’s nothing wrong with that either. However, leave it to hateful, anti-Christmas liberals to turn the image “issue” into major allegations against the Trumps.
President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have revealed their official Christmas card for 2017.
The first lady debuted the card on Twitter on Dec. 14, reports Empty World.
In the caption accompanying the Trump’s Christmas card photo, the first lady tweeted: Merry Christmas from President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.POTUS & FLOTUS are seen Tuesday, December 5, in their official 2017 Christmas portrait, in the Cross Hall of the White House in Washington, D.C.”
Seems like an elegant and perfect Christmas card, right? Well, liberals took immediate notice and concern of something else. Rather than realizing that this was a shot that was supposed to be just of the President and First Lady, people began to react to the fact that their youngest son Barron, wasn’t in the photo greeting.“This Christmas…Barron Trump is HOME ALONE!” one commenter said, cleverly making reference to the popular 1990 movie of the same name. As the remarks and question of the boy’s absence came pouring in, the next plausible step for Internet sleuths was to start a hashtag for it – since that’s what they do.
The hashtag “Where’s Barron” almost immediately made an appearance. “For the photo, the first lady wore a sleeveless, long, black dress, with pointed black stilettos, while the president wore a black tuxedo with a matching bow tie,” Opposing Views pointed out of our stunning first couple. “They are seen smiling, hand in hand, standing in front of the White House double doors, with two Christmas trees on either side, each of which is covered in fake snow.”
The couple is certainly used to the criticism at this point since it’s been a solid year of such ridiculous attacks that have no sign of slowing in the new year. They probably realized that they are “damned if you do and damned if you don’t” with including Barron in the picture since the criticism then would have been why they didn’t have the rest of Trump’s children in the shot. Chances are, they decided to just keep it simple.
Prior to unveiling the photo, the White House debuted a video of Melania Trump getting the property ready for the holidays, decorating the trees, preparing wreaths, and supervising the baking of cookies.Stephanie Grisham, director of communications for the first lady’s office, confirmed via tweet that a huge gingerbread house was also prepared, constructed from 300 pounds of dough, reports Time.
Also on display are former President Ronald Reagan’s china and former President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1866 edition of “A Christmas Carol.”
More details on the decorations are provided by The Daily Beast, which reports that also on display are 71 wreaths, 53 Christmas trees, more than 18,000 lights, more than 12,000 ornaments, over 3,100 yards of ribbon and more than 1,000 feet of garland.
The Daily Beast’s Tim Teeman thought it was overkill, however, and declared it the “creepiest home space in America,” comparing it to scenery from a Tim Burton movie and recommending that the first lady keep the Christmas decorations up for next Halloween.
In addition to the card and video, Melania Trump also issued an official Christmas statement, reports Time. “The President, Barron, and I are very excited for our first Christmas in the White House,” she said. “As with many families across the country, holiday traditions are very important to us. I hope when visiting the People’s House this year, visitors will get a sense of being home for the holidays.”The root of the issue is probably jealousy that the Trumps are in the White House and Hillary Clinton is not on this Christmas card as she and all of her supporters expected to see before her major loss in the presidential elections. We have a lot of reasons to celebrate this season and the two people in this picture have a lot to do with that.
